New Stereo or Amplifier?
I recently took the rear speakers out and put in some alpine 6x9 speakers. Anyways, these speakers have a max watt output of 260, with a 85watt RMS. I know the stereo can't be putting out over 100 watts at all. So would it be better for me to get an amplifier or just get a higher watt output stereo to match the speakers for best sound?
IMO, probably only if you want more volume assuming the speakers sound ok at the moment.
Most HUs don't put out more than ~25W per channel into 4 Ohm speakers because they only use the available 12V supply (ie, no internal voltage boosting).
That's an RMS rating BTW, there is little point comparing non-RMS ratings. (Actually there is no point...)
Yes they sound ok but I feel they can take more power, so I may end up buying an amp, Thank you OldSpark
